I am not a techy and I need some help to slipstream a sata controller driver to a custom windows installtion cd but I cannot determine what file or folder in the driver archive I downloaded from my mobo manufacturer. My mobo is an old ECS KT600a with an Athlon XP 2000 and I have downloaded the SATA driver from the ECS website which is via_43g.zip.
I have a 320gb WD hdd SATAII which I will lock to SATA1 speed via a jumper also according to WD guidelines.
I use nLite for slipstreaming and when I am to select the driver I am confused as to what will I select. My OS is WinXP SP3. What will I select so I will have the right driver to install? The zip archive shows: (Please see images attached)
via_43g > drvdisk > VISTA
x86 > NT4 >
> NT5 >
What will I select from the x86 folder? (it is x86 folder isn't it for 32bit system Wiindows XP SP3..correct?)
Is it NT4 or NT5?
I understand that in nLite you can select a folder or a specific file. Which of the two is the most correct to use?
If I can select a folder can NT4 or NT5(whichever is correct) be sufficient?
do I need to select a specific .inf OR .sys file?
My plan is to clone the existing old hdd-ide to the new sata drive. For that I will be using Acronis True Image Home 11 (in clone disk>automatic mode).
I just need to format the new drive with the CORRECT SATA driver (before performing the ATI cloning) and I am at a loss as to what will I be selecting in nLite. I previously did a slipstream using the motherboard cd-driver SATA folder contents but when I was done it did not recognize the new drive. The reason I downloaded the new driver from ECS website.
Can you guide me on this one please. The ECS website doesnt have a forum for technical suppor but only via a support ticket and up to now there is no reply.
Thank you very much.
